Increased Demand for Oracle Skill Sets
By Harold Green on Aug 26, 2011
A friend recently pointed me to an article related to the Top 10 skill sets for job opportunities in his area. Interestingly - nearly HALF were based around Oracle technologies.
It's great to hear that jobs continue to be available; however - the scarcity of some of these jobs (including tech-related jobs) reminds me of the difference that certification can make in your job search. Certification can be a relatively quick way to differentiate yourself, and along with other important skills (communication skills, problem-solving skills, etc.) and experience - can make the difference in either getting a job or being passed over.
As you prepare for your certification through focused study, practice, and training, you will increase your knowledge and expand your skill set; an investment in yourself that can have a very quick payback.
Oracle offers a variety of certifications in many technical areas - including many of those mentioned in the article. Visit certification.oracle.com to find out more.
